Aguereberry Dawn

The sun peeks over the Black Mountains at sunrise in this view from Death Valley National Park’s Aguereberry Point. The 6,433 ft viewpoint is named after a miner from the nearby Eureka Mine. It was several years of visits to Death Valley before I finally made it up to this viewpoint. I had the whole place to myself on this morning. Turbulent atmosphere would give way to rain and snow showers throughout the park, and looking towards this point from the valley floor later in the evening showed it to be covered in fresh snow. On the right side of frame the higher Panamints with some fresh snow disappear into the clouds, hiding Telescope Peak’s summit nearly a vertical mile higher than I was standing. I love Death Valley in the wintertime. 22 image panorama with Sony A7r and Canon 24-70 2.8L II via Metabones at 24mm, NOT the 24-70 FE OSS.
